Soura Filmfestival: Scenes I Imagine + Tea With Adonis


Regie: Metin Akdemir, Türkei 2020, 45 Min, Türkisch mit englischen Untertiteln

From the 1980s onwards and in tandem with significant feminism gains, some influential productions which are categorized and widely accepted as “Women’s Film” took their place in the history of Turkish Cinema.

Scenes I Imagine examines why the “queer implications/possibilities” that these so-called “Women’s Films” entail are portrayed as friendship, companionship or sisterhood or why they are represented / cannot be represented as queer relations.


Regie: Salim Mrad, Libanon 2022, 35 Min, Arabisch mit englischen Untertiteln

Adonis is a queer seventy-three-year-old man. He currently lives in the Ashrafieh district of Beirut. He continues to water his numerous plants daily and host his numerous friends for cheerful dinners every other week. Adonis is full of stories from the sixties, seventies, eighties and the nineties. Though he did not live continuously in the country, he has been travelling the world, with constant visits to his homeland. Conversations with him can easily switch from academic intricacies to plain old gossip about sexual matters or unresolved crimes. Ameer is a thirty-something younger man who wants to gather stories and anecdotes from Adonis. He feels the Lebanese queer past hasn’t been archived well enough so he views Adonis as the golden hen. However, when he notices Adonis has it easier to be physically nude than to reveal the full nudity of his feelings, he starts feeling frustrated. What else to expect, would Adonis say, from someone who always lived a double life?
